Audio level too low and noisy with USB through Xenyx 1622usb

Post by ckl6767 » Thu Jul 17, 2014 11:49 am

Hello all

I need your support and help relative my audio level which is really too low and noisy :wink:

I bought Auria 48 Recording Track as DAW.
Auria is used with my iPad mini Retina: OS : 7.1.2

My iPad is connected via USB cable to my Berhinger Mixer Xenyx x1622usb with Monitoring Loudspeaker : Yamaha HS50M
Recording + Playing are going straight away from/to USB

For information: This Mixer as already been used with "Ardour" under linux, and that, Without any problems. :?

Now to the issues that get me frustrated.
When I load the project "The Approach" in Auria, and play it through my Mixer, the level is really too low, and when I increase the level, I can hear the song, but I have to increase the level so much, that I will hear the white noise !! :cry:

Same issue, when I try to record a instrument: Guitar, Piano. The level seems to be OK at the input meter, but when I play later the record, same observation as above.
==> Level too low, and noisy because the I have to boost so much in order to hear the song

Any advises would be appreciated

Many tanks in advance

Christian

Sounds like you may need to increase the master volume level of your USB interface. Does it have a control panel software, which allows you to change the levels?

Usb level is well adapted on Berhinger Mixer Xenyx x1622usb.
As explained, when I perform a daw with Ardour, all is working well

@ckl6767: Is this only a problem with Auria? Are you able to test using any other DAW on your iPad (e.g. GarageBand) or another audio app that will use a USB interface?

It used to be possible to alter the USB output volume using the iPad's hardware volume buttons on the side of the iPad. But I think this isn't possible any longer on iOS6+, however you could give it a try - make sure the interface is plugged in, then try to use the volume buttons on the side of the iPad.

Hi,

Issue resolved with iPad's hardware volume buttons on the side of the iPad :wink:
I was surprised that the USB level is also controlled with the iPad button with OS : 7.1.2

Thanks

Good to know. Looks like Apple brought this back in iOS7.
